...still, you might need a little help unlocking your creative path. That's where I come in.

Creative Conversations

I've been a guest on a few pretty cool shows, and I think you'll really like these conversations! We dive into topics like creativity, perfectionism, and working with your inner critic to build a lifetime of wonder.

I know how hard it can be to stay motivated when you have years of self-doubt to overcome, and that's why I make learning art easy and fun. 

From free tutorials on my Instagram and YouTube to workshops and intensive deep dives, I make it my mission to package watercolor techniques in a way that'll have you saying "wow, I can't believe I made that!" in no time.

Welcome to my classroom. I'm so glad you're here.

Creativity is a practice.
